The background check conducted by Genesis Risk Mitigation Pvt. Ltd. revealed crucial discrepancies in the candidate’s employment history.

Genesis Risk Mitigation Pvt. Ltd. conducted an Employee History Check on behalf of a renowned private bank for a prospective hire. The objective was to verify the accuracy and authenticity of the candidate’s employment history.

Upon conducting the background check, discrepancies were identified in the employment history provided by the candidate. While the candidate listed four previous employers, only one company could confirm the authenticity of the relieving letter. In two instances, there were significant disparities in the dates of joining and relieving compared to the information provided by the candidate. Additionally, one company confirmed that the candidate was, in fact, terminated. Hence, it was discovered that the relieving letters presented by the candidate for three out of the four companies were not genuine.

By identifying the discrepancies in the dates of employment and the authenticity of relieving letters, our client, the private bank, was able to make an informed decision regarding the prospective hire. This helped mitigate the risk of hiring a candidate with misrepresented employment credentials , potentially saving the bank from future operational and reputational risks. Overall, the thorough background check provided valuable insights, enabling our client to safeguard its interests and maintain the integrity of its hiring process.


One of our reputed logistics, distribution and supply chain client had increasing concerns relating to the company expenditure at one of their regional offices.

The issue raised the alarm, and our client decided to do background verification of various position holders at the regional office. We retrieved feedback from previous employers to find any links relating to this subject matter.

We found out that a regional manager who was handling finances, budgets and vendors for our client; was terminated by his previous employer due to financial malpractices.

Further details revealed that he had allegedly forged his payslips, showing higher remunerations than his actual earnings from the previous job. He did so to negotiate a better package from our client and very well succeeded in his purpose.

The previous organization also claimed that they had registered a criminal case against the employee for all his financial frauds. We later confirmed the case via criminal record check. Our client was stunned by these discoveries and findings.

Our client convoked auditors on the regional manager’s department to find out about any malpractices in the books. We found that his mendacious activities were still ongoing. An auditor detection revealed that he was inflating various vendor invoices for a long time, making a substantial difference in the overall company expenditure.

The client now does background verifications for every employee and prospective candidate to minimize employee fraud.
